Is The Tightness And Chest Pain And Cold Soles A Sign Of A Weak Heart?
, I often feel tightness in the chest and uncomfortable when my mind is very heavy or when I am in a state of distress.
Hello Alyanggra, thank you for asking.
Shortness and discomfort or pain in the chest are often associated with heart problems. You need to know that the symptoms of tightness and discomfort in the chest can come from physical and psychological disorders. Physical disorders can come from lung problems, digestive problems, muscle and bone problems, or heart problems. Some examples of conditions that might cause symptoms of tightness and chest pain are:
Muscle pain due to injury or inflammation. People will feel like shortness of breath because when people breathe in the muscles will be painful, consequently people limit their breathing to shallow and short, giving the impression like shortness of breath. Injury or disturbance to the sternum. Indigestion such as gastritis, peptic ulcers, inflammation of the gallbladder, inflammation of the pancreas. Akibaf is located close to the chest cavity, disruption in the abdominal organs can be felt as a chest disorder. Infection or inflammation of the lungs. Heart problems. Heart problems generally cause significant chest pain, accompanied by a clear feeling of shortness of breath. These symptoms are usually triggered by strenuous activity or severe stress and symptoms are felt increasingly more severe. Symptoms will decrease if the person rests. Generally this symptom is accompanied by cold sweat, feeling of fainting, palpitations, feeling of being crushed or depressed in the chest, nausea, vomiting, even in some people can get diarrhea.
Basically in the medical world there is no diagnosis of weak heart. The term is used to facilitate lay people in understanding heart disorders that interfere with the normal functioning of the heart. You can consult with a cardiologist to determine whether there are problems with your heart. The doctor may perform additional examinations such as X-rays, echocardiography, or treadmill test. If there are no abnormalities in the structure of your chest and heart, it is also possible that the condition you are experiencing is due to psychological stress. Chronic and heavy psychological stress will generally manifest as physical symptoms. Symptoms are very diverse, ranging from tightness, muscle stiffness, fainting, the body feels cold, the head feels floating, and so on. You can consult a psychiatrist or psychologist about this problem. In the meantime you can try to examine the root of the problem that causes you stress and manage it. If you feel symptoms appear but you are still able to do light daily activities, then the possibility of these symptoms is caused by psychological conditions, not physical.
Thus our explanation, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
